    My Seth Thomas mantle clock model 1600 has an electric motor with a15 leaf cut pinion on its shaft. I would like to repair or replace. It’s not an expensive clock but a family favorite. Any suggestions?

    If there is continuity in the coil, you do not need to replace the motor. If you do not have an ohm meter, you can plug it in and either listen for a hum or see if it has created a magnetic field. My guess is the motor is ok.
